Millions of fans agree with Romantic Times when it praises Cathy Maxwell for being an author "who understands the human heart and whose stories touch our souls". Her novels are filled with dashing, daring characters, yet their desires are universal.

"Maxwell...makes good use of her trademark clean, crisp prose style, weaving a reverse gift-of-the-magi tale set in the Black Mountains of Wales and starring two engaging and lusty protagonists." (Publishers Weekly)
The story line and writing style of this book was very much that of Catherine Cookson which I have always found rather boring. The major difference with this book, of course, is the added sex scenes which were so explicit and so repetitive that the whole thing soon became too nauseous for me to continue.
"Just an OK listen"
A "nice" story about a fortune hunter who marries a supposed heiress who keeps secret the fact that she has lost her fortune. They fall in love anyway and live happily ever after. The end.
There are better ways to use your credits!
"Nice reliable historical romance."
An enjoyable evening spent listening to the book, nice narrator. I won't say it is the most memorable, but light and breezy.
"one of the better romances"
I enjoyed this book as it had both a decent storyline and an excellent reader when compared to other romances.
